A classic gets the five star treatment,
This review is from: Over the River and Through the Wood: The New England Boy's Song About Thanksgiving Day (Hardcover)
The classic song gets a stellar treatment in this latest retelling. I find that I was only familiar with the original verse, and was interested to see many more in this beautiful picture book. The illustrations are reminiscent of Currier and Ives, and dropped me solidly into holiday mode from the very first page. There are tons of picture books out there that have used this song as a basis for all sorts of visual interpretations, but if you are looking for a classic, old fashioned version to add to your collection, this is the one. It's just beautifully done, from the paintings that perfectly evoke a rural snowy day in the 1800's, to the classic font. A perfect addition to any holiday collection.
